Antonio Faccilongo is an Italian documentary photographer based in Rome.
After graduating in communication sciences, and then obtaining a masters in photojournalism, he focused his attention on Asia and the Middle East, principally in Palestine, covering social, political and cultural issues.
Documenting the aftermath of Palestinian-Israeli conflict in West Bank and Gaza Strip, he sought to unveil and highlight the humanitarian issues hidden within one of the world’s most reported conflicts, because too often it is shown only as a place of war and conflict.
His long term projects about Women and their families in Palestine, “Habibi” and “(Single) Women”, have received several awards and grants including Getty editorial grant and they have been exhibited internationally at numerous shows and festivals.
